Ten great Baptists feature in this book from this reliable guide: John Smyth, Thomas Grantham, Dan Taylor, John Spilsbury, William Kiffin, hanserd Knollys, Benjamin Keach, John Gill, Andrew Fuller and William Carey. Each biography is made relevant to the present day.
The nature of Baptist identity has come to a place of critical importance in Baptist studies. What exactly constitutes a Baptist? Tom Nettles seeks to answer this fascinating question through examining the lives of some of the most high profile and influential Baptists in history.
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky has a library loaded with Baptist materials including a rich archival collection, which Tom found indispensable for this book.
Nettles establishes a clearly identifiable profile of Baptists. He looks at many influential spokesmen for Baptist lives who embraced the bible as an unerring divine revelation. From John Spilsbury to William Carey we are taken on an enlightening journey through the origin and expansion of the Baptist Church. Tom Nettles has produced a book that is wonderfully informative and, through its profiles of God honouring historical figures, should serve us encouragement to all Christians today.
